After the conclusion of its latest Elite Task Force workshop, several members of The Division community have begun to tease the contents of upcoming updates. This includes update 1.7 which will feature the Seasons and Feats that Massive teased in March.
Arekkz Gaming noted his impressions in a new video and revealed what shape the other new content would be taking. The first is Global Events, which will last one week and are essentially what Seasons are now called. The overall length could vary depending on the event but you can still count on it happening once a month.
Each Global Event will have a positive modifier and this will apply to all PvE activities. You can add more modifiers for better rewards. There will also be the chance to earn a new Stat Item for further improving your build. If that’s not enough, then a new type of Vanity Item will also be up for grabs.
Commendations are the name for Feats and they’ll keep track of your progress in various areas. While some can be completed for points, others offer a new type of Vanity Item (separate from the Global Event kind). While some Commendations will be completed easily, others require a change in play-style.
Interestingly, it seems that update 1.8 will also introduce changes to the Rogue system along with new features. Neither update has a release date so stay tuned for more updates.
